In 2019, Hot Since 82 shared an intimate look into a period of mourning with his 8-Track record. Flash forward to today, when he has continued to take his fans along on his journey with him to the next stage—Recovery. As his first full-length studio album, he describes the 13-track release as a "healing record" that has provided him wiht a therapeutic release and positioned him in a more positive headspace.
Recovery is stunning from start to finish. Not only does it exude uplifting spirits, but it also features a slew of jaw-dropping collaborations. The biggest stand-out is on "Body Control," which features the iconic vocals of Boy George and production help from the world-renowned Jamie Jones. The single encapsulates the underground music culture of 1982, the year that spawned both Culture Club and the boy that went on to become Hot Since 82.
